The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has rejected the statement of former Punjab’s information minister Marriyum Aurangzeb in which she claimed the NAB raided the house of Hamza Shehbaz’s sister.
The NAB, in its statement, said the team had arrived at the residence of Hamza’s sister to get the notice accepted. There was no raid at her house, the spokesperson for the accountability watchdog said.
The spokesperson said some elements were trying to discredit the NAB with their false claims.
In another clarification, The National Accountability Bureau also rejected claims made by Punjab Assembly’s opposition leader Hamza Shehbaz that NAB director general was taking action against him ‘under duress’.
Hamza Shehbaz, earlier in the day, had cited Punjab’s NAB director general as saying that he was taking action against the Sharifs under pressure. Hamza went on to say that NAB chief also demanded him to withdraw a resolution from Punjab Assembly that cast doubts on his academic degree.
In his clarification, the NAB spokesperson said DG NAB Lahore had never spoken to Hamza about his degree. “The allegations leveled by the PML-N leader are all baseless and unfounded.”
The spokesperson said concrete evidence was found against the Sharif family against money laundering.
